Off to America

It all starts tomorrow. At 6am. Of course.

First we fly to Florida, for a little over a week. Paul returns to Rome. Phoebe and I go on to Seattle, for a little over two weeks. Rendezvous in Rome. So…

  • 3 countries
  • 2 states
  • 9 time zones
  • 2 parents
  • 1 baby
  • 0 dogs (this time)
  • 1 million pieces of luggage

Wish us luck!

One small snow bunny

Not necessarily a fan of the elements. On Phoebe’s first snow day, she was less enthusiastic than we’d hoped.

But as with swimming in the summer, we think she’ll catch on.  There should be plenty of chances too. Yesterday’s adventure was only an hour and a half outside of Rome by car; suddenly we’d left behind the city and found…winter!

We’ll go again and next time we’ll bring two things: a sled and Carter.

First fire

We were apprehensive at first. The apartment has an open fireplace and we were told “it works”. But still, the idea of lighting even a portion of your apartment on fire seems daunting. But two Duraflames (plus a bowl of popcorn and a movie) later, we’re wondering why we didn’t get the fires going earlier! Nothing is more cozy.

Except maybe a beard.

My friend Jen

For the first half of her two-part Euro-vacation, Jen visited us in Rome this week. For a few nice days we walked, ate, talked…then did it all again.

Phoebe too. Vantage point: Bugaboo.
